Tripoli, Jan 10 (ANI): Libya has not responded to a request for information about the health and status of slain Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi's son, Saif al-Islam, before a deadline which expires on Tuesday, the International Criminal Court (ICC) has said.
Gaddafi's most prominent son is being held in the western town of Zintan. He was arrested while trying to flee the country.
The ICC, based in The Hague, has indicted Saif for crimes against humanity and wants to know officially whether Libya plans to hand him over.
According to the BBC, Saif earlier told a representative of Human Rights Watch that he was being treated well, but had not seen a lawyer or the detailed charges against him.
The ICC could refer Libya to the UN Security Council if it does not impart information about Saif's health and status.
Meanwhile, Fred Abrahams of Human Rights Watch said that he had the impression from a meeting with Saif that he 'doesn't fully understand that he is no longer one of the most powerful people in the country'. (ANI)
